The journey continues: Where to from here

We have reached the end of this series but the journey of stepping up in leadership is an ongoing one. I never want to get to the place where I think I know everything and get too comfortable. I want to be a life long learner, especially when it comes to my leadership. I hope that you have the same idea.

It was my intention for this series to encourage and inspire other leaders walking this journey. I also wanted those who don't see themselves as leaders to recognise the influence and abilities that they have already. Through my experiences and reflections, I want to empower leaders. 

I knew from previous years what a challenge a daily series can be. It has grown and stretched me. It has forced me to take long looks at myself and evaluate areas of my leadership honestly. It has helped me to identify areas where growth and learning is needed. I now get to apply what I have learned as I take on my new role.

This series has had the added benefit of giving me renewed momentum in my writing and clarifying the direction I want to take. This blog has always been a vague idea for me. Now I know where my heart beat is: Encouraging others in leading themselves, leading their families and leading others. Over the next few months, I want to focus my writing to fit with this heart beat and make changes on the blog to reflect this. I would love for you to join me in this.

For the past two years, reaching the end of Write 31 Days has left me with somewhat of an anticlimax. This year, I have a project. Writing daily limits the depth that I can go in my writing. The feedback I have had from this series makes it clear to me that there is a need for these words. I will be turning this series into an ebook. I am looking forward to expanding on the reflections and ideas to produce a resource that can reach many more on their leadership journey. If you want to keep in touch with this project, subscribe below and you will be among the first to know when it is available.

What I am most interested in now, is how I can help you. What do you struggle with in your leadership journey? Where do you need the most encouragement? I would love to hear from you.

And now, I celebrate completing this challenge!
